Destination: American Revolution Museum and The Forgotten Soldier – Jan. 4, 2020

American Revolution Museum

Let’s go to the American Revolution Museum and get ready for another adventure in travel as we go back in time to the Revolutionary War.  There were many battles which lead to the American independence. But, have you stopped to think about those who fought but were never recognized?  Or those who through their support and resilience at home, helped make this a success for the 13 North American colonies.  

The Revolutionary War fought between April 1775 and Sept. 1783 was also known as the American Revolution.  As tensions between residents of Great Britain’s 13 North American colonies and the British Crown’s colonial government, get stronger and stronger, small skirmishes between British troops and rebels became more frequent.  They were ready to start a full-scale war for their independence from what they felt was too overbearing.  

I had a chance to visit the American Revolution Museum in Yorktown, Virginia where there is an opportunity to view the Special Exhibition of the Forgotten Soldier.  This fascinating and educational exhibit is available until March 22, 2020.  I encourage you to start now planning to visit this exhibit before it is gone.  What you will learn will amaze you. If you are a history buff, interested in African American stories in the pursuit for freedom, or ready to learn more details about the Revolutionary war; this is your exhibit.

Here’s a link to the playlist.  And, also take a look at the photo gallery below too.
